Subject Re: Couch not releasing deleted files
Date Tue, 14 Sep 2010 20:46:55 GMT
It was just on a DB with a lot of writes (documents having lots of
revisions, rather that lots of new docs), the database grows as expected but
after just doing a simple compact on the db the old files still seem to be
on disk as reported previously.

It seems its been around a while now as (as far as we can see) 0.11 / 1.0
and 1.0.1 all have the same issue, when we replicated the same data over to
the newer versions the same identical problem happened.
